2012 Lexus LFA Coupe
Benefits of Driving a 2012 Lexus LFA Coupe
With two seats; a low, edgy supercar profile; and a high-revving V-10 engine; the front-engine, rear-wheel-drive LFA is unlike anything that Lexus has ever produced. It's a unique take on an exotic car--and almost like a Formula One race car--yet with Toyota's reputation for reliability and durability behind it, it's bound to be less trouble, to keep maintained and repaired, than Italian exotics.
What's new for 2012?
The 2012 Lexus LFA is an all-new exotic sports car, set to compete with the likes of the Ferrari Enzo or Lamborghini Gallardo. The very limited-production (500 total worldwide, with no more than 20 made per month) LFA is both an image-builder for the brand as well as an engineering testbed.
- Sheer speed and performance capability
- exclusivity and rarity
- F1-influenced design
- luxury-car interior appointments
- racetrack ready but street-drivable
The 2012 LFA has a traditional sports-car layout, with rear-wheel drive, the engine in front. From there, the LFA begins to sound more like a Formula One car, with its automated six-speed manual gearbox mounted in back to help assure a good weight distribution, and its body structure mostly made of carbon-fiber composite.
